Jewish Studies And Jewish Folklore, Dan Ben-Amos Jan 1990

Jewish Studies And Jewish Folklore, Dan Ben-Amos

Departmental Papers (NELC)

Occasionally in the annals of scholarship there are events that turn upon themselves, so that, instead of being forums for exchange of ideas about a defined topic, they themselves become a subject for analysis and self-rejection. Our present panel is such an occasion. This is the first time in the history of the World Congresses for Jewish Studies that the program committee has allocated the discipline of folklore a plenary session, treating it as the equal of history, literature, Jewish languages and other fields that make up the entire gamut of Jewish studies. And thereby hangs a question. Why the ...

Introduction To Savushun: A Novel About Modern Iran, Brian Spooner Jan 1990

Introduction To Savushun: A Novel About Modern Iran, Brian Spooner

Department of Anthropology Papers

First published in 1969, Simin Daneshvar's Savushun has gone through sixteen printings and sold half a million copies -- a record for a work of literature in modern Iran. The reason is not obscure. Daneshvar's style is sensitive and imaginative. Her story follows basic cultural themes and metaphors. It goes straight to the hearts of a generation of Iranian readers, striking special chords of emotion and memory of the recent past. Savushun enriches a generation's understanding of itself. It encap­sulates the experience of Iranians who have lived through the midcen­tury decades which led up to the ...


Review Of Robert Ackerman, J.G. Frazer: His Life And Work, Dan Ben-Amos Jan 1990

Review Of Robert Ackerman, J.G. Frazer: His Life And Work, Dan Ben-Amos

Departmental Papers (NELC)

"Darwin, Marx, Frazer and Freud are among the most important thinkers of the past century, and are significant shapers of the modern mind and of the present century" (Stanly Edgar Hyman, The Tangled Bank: Darwin, Marx, Frazer and Freud and Imaginative Writers [1966], p. x). Of these four, Frazer is probably the only one who has written more books than has books written about him. Surely, references and allusions to his works abound. In 1922 T.S. Eliot cited in his "Notes on 'The Waste Land' " Frazer's The Golden Bough as a work "which has influenced our generation profoundly ...
